Rocket City Trash Pandas 2021

In 2021, I joiend the Rocket City Trash Pandas, Double-A Affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels, as the Media Relations Coordinator. I moved to Huntsville, Alabama about two weeks before the first game in franchise history and quickly became the lead media contact for Minor League Baseball's most meteroic franchise in their inaugural season. 

 

Here are a number of my works for the team from the inaugural 2021 season. Clips from 2022 can be found on a separate page.
